Infection Prevention Staffing

Licensing requirements mandate that hospitals in Illinois have an infection prevention and control program (77 Ill. Adm. Code 250.1100). Healthcare associated infections are a growing problem in healthcare facilities across the nation. Infection prevention programs and staff are essential in reducing the number of infections acquired during a hospital stay, providing expertise in disease transmission and prevention. These measures show the number of infection prevention and control staff for every 100 authorized hospital beds. The information below is obtained from hospitals and submitted to the Illinois Department of Public Health. See Report Card Methodology.
